Groups for Moms of Children of ALL Ages


"Entitlement is a thief, out to steal all that is truly valuable in our lives and the lives of our children!  It is fed by the media and nourished by the over indulgence that many parents perpetrate on their children in the name of love. That is how entitlement creeps into our homes, our schools, and our hearts."  - From "Innocence to Entitlement: A Love and Logic Cure for the Tragedy of Entitlement"
 . . . and it starts at a very early age.

Mothers of children of all ages are invited to join an ongoing group
(or open a new group) for the purpose of discussing 
"From Innocence to Entitlement:
Love and Logic Cure for the Tragedy of Entitlement"
by Jim Fay and Dawn Billings

Making an impact one home at a time -- Mothering Matters! 
Groups for mothers of infants and preschoolers to connect weekly and grow in friendship, faith, and family life.  (Opening up to moms of children of all ages in January, 2015).

Mothering Matters Discipleship Groups are groups of 3-12 mothers who meet weekly to grow in friendships, faith and family life. These groups follow a curriculum rotation that includes a focused look at becoming a godly woman, wife and mother. We are also incorporating the current church emphasis into our time together.    

Where do Mothering Matters Groups meet?  Mothering Matters Groups meet in homes around the Metro area.  Typically one of the group members volunteers to open her home and her heart to serve as the group's hostess. Children are welcome and childcare is determined by each group and its members.

What Will Mothering Matters Groups be Studying in 2015?
January - March - "From Innocence to Entitlement: A Love and Logic Cure for the Tragedy of Entitlement" by Jim Fay and Dawn Billings.  You may purchase your book "HERE".
April - June - "Living Grounded" Discipleship. You may purchase your set of Living Grounded Discipleship materials in the MBCTysons Connect Room after any weekend services. ($10/set).
